5 Using the appliance
Put the appliance on a stable, horizontal and level surface.
Fill the water tank with water up to the maximum level. with a full water tank, the steamer can steam
approximately 1 hour.
When you want to steam foods that require different steaming times, start steaming the food that
requires the longest steaming time in bowl 2. Set the steaming time adjustment knob to a time
that you calculate by deducting the shorter steaming time from the longest steaming time. When
the steaming is finished, carefully remove the lid with oven mitts and place bowl 3 containing the
ingredients with the shorter steaming time on top of bowl 2. Put the lid on bowl 3 and set the
shorter steaming time with the steaming time adjustment knob.
Only fill the water tank with water. Never put seasoning, oil, or other substances in the water tank.
Food in the top bowl takes usually a little longer to steam than food in the lower bowls.
If you use ground herbs and spices, rinse the drip tray to wet the flavor booster. This prevents ground
herbs or spices from falling through the openings of the flavor booster. If desired, put dried or fresh
herbs or spices on the flavor booster to add extra flavor to the food to be steamed.

depending on the size of the food pieces, the space between the food in the steaming bowl,
